It doesn't show up on Google's Map view at all...

I just tried the url that I supplied and the link here on this page and the island shows up for me.

Wait, I just realized that you probably meant the Road Map view? A lot of stuff doesn't show up on that!
Sometimes for the U.S. I wander along the landscape with the corresponding topo map open in another browser window. (If Google Maps would somehow integrate that - oh man!) By looking at the topo maps, road maps, & Satellite images all (sort of) at the same time, you get a much greater view of what's there... not a complete view but more info is filled in that otherwise you might never know about.

Yeah, I gathered you were spending some QT with the USGS... Google's road map definitely needs some finessing.
Have you seen MultiMap's interface?
Their aerial mode creates a semi-transparent area around the pointer that shows their map overlaid on the aerial photo.
Check this link out for an example:
That's a pretty nifty interface trick; it could use some tweaking though...
